Vitamin B

Vitamin B


The main dietary sources of B vitamins are brewer's or food yeast, seeds, whole grains, nuts, as well as offal, dried or green vegetables, fruits and dairy products.

Active components

B vitamins form a group of eight hydrosoluble vitamins that play an important role in cell metabolism (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B8, B9 and B12). It was initially believed that there was only one chemical compound, called vitamin B, like there is vitamin C, but subsequent research has established that there are, in reality, several different compounds that coexist together most of the time in the same foods.


With the exception of vitamin B3 that is produced by the body in small quantities and vitamin B12 which is stored in certain organs, the other B complex vitamins must be regularly included in the diet, because they are not stored in reserves. The B vitamins often work for the benefit of the body. It has been demonstrated that the B vitamins increase the metabolism, help to maintain health skin and muscles, improve the immune system, improve the nervous system and promote cell growth and division.
